Gorilla Spares was founded from the combination of three problems:
- Many spare parts vendors have amazing products but typically do not have the time, know-how or resources available to develop a viable and sustainable ecommerce sales platform.
- Many end-users are searching for quality products online but do not know who is reputable or trust-worthy. A nice-looking website no longer means a quality product or reputable vendor.
- Both vendors and end-users have tried the big box auction and sales sites. These sites have produced mixed results due to unreliable feedback systems, unpredictable product quality, lack of technical / warranty support and unreliable delivery times.
- Listing cost for products on auction houses can easily exceed 15%-20% in total fees. This is much higher than the standard cost of doing business through traditional sales channels.
Gorilla Spares solves these problems by acting as a bridge between high quality vendors and the end-users that are searching online for their products.
- End users trust Gorilla Spares to audit, qualify and partner with reputable vendors while ensuring they have outstanding workmanship and customer service.
- Vendors rely on Gorilla Spares to provide a low-cost, maintenance-free ecommerce platform for their products that is viable and sustainable. In addition, Gorilla Spares exposes vendor’s products to clients and markets that may not found them through traditional business-to-business sales and distribution channels.
